Be transported into your music with the MCT500 SACD/CD Transport.
The MCT500 is a digital-only unit and features 4 digital outputs: AES/EBU, coax, and optical outputs plus our exclusive MCT connector. To enjoy your CDs, they can be paired with any product that has standard digital inputs and a D-to-A converter DAC.
For SACD playback, the MCT500’s proprietary MCT output needs to be connected (via the included cable) to a McIntosh product with an MCT input. This includes the D1100, C52, C2600, C47, and D150 preamplifiers, MA9000, MA8900, MA7200, or MA5300 integrated amplifiers or MAC7200 receiver. When the MCT500 is connected to one of these devices, a secure digital connection is created, allowing for the playback of the HD audio found on SACD. Standard CDs can also be played over the MCT connection.
